Yasmine Yehia Moustafa, a student at Maadi STEM School for Girls in Egypt, devised a system to produce clean water and biodiesel using rice straw as her capstone project. Her school is part of a new network aimed at giving students the skills they’ll need to address the country’s grand challenges.

Maadi STEM School for Girls is part of a network of new high schools in Egypt focused on preparing students to become leaders in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). It was established as part of a collaborative effort to overhaul Egypt’s education system to give students real-world skills needed to help solve the country’s Grand Challenges. The program was designed and now co-managed by TIES.
